The ITU World Triathlon Final in London is one of the world’s leading triathlon events, and as always, we participated with our O-Container right at the heart of the event. On the day before the race, our VIP invitees were able to meet and greet one of the world’s greatest triathlon stars: Oakley athletes Javier Gomez Noya (ESP).
You couldn’t have asked for a more fitting final to the ITU World Triathlon Series. In a rematch between perennial favorites and 2012 Olympic medalists, Javier Gomez Noya and the Brownlee brothers, the entire world title came down to a final sprint between the sport’s two powerhouses. Gomez Noya was able to outlast Jonny Brownlee, reversing the final medal count at the Summer Olympics just a year earlier at the same venue where the Spaniard took second prize and Jonny won bronze. Unfortunately for the Olympic gold medalist, Alistair Brownlee was hobbled by an ankle injury and couldn’t race with his brother and Gomez Noya to the finish. Mario Mola of Spain took third place in the race.

The male and female winners in Nice each set course records, respectively, with Van Lierde smashing his own course record, which he set last year.
